TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Eight years teaching sixth grade

MY TEACHING STYLE

I do interactive notebooks with my students and I have found that this works very well. I believe in a lot of COLOR and graphics/visuals in student work, I feel like this supplement helps them remember things a little better.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Graduated Summa Cum Laude

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Lees-McRae College in May of 2013.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My name is Hannah Collins, I live in NC with my hubby, our kids and two dogs. I absolutely love teaching and have a passion for history. I realized that I was creating so many things that I felt like other people could use also, and I could make a little pocket money in the process so I decided to list some of my things on TPT!
